Cougars can't dodge Loons' up-and-coming arms

The Cougars have lost the first two games of their series with Great Lakes, but faced top pitching in the process.

In Wednesday's series opener, the Loons threw righty Chris Anderson, the first-round draft pick of the parent Los Angeles Dodgers last month. On Thursday, it was lefty Tom Windle, a 2013 second-round pick.

"They just pitched down in the zone, they got ahead of guys," Cougars manager Mark Johnson said. "That starter tonight, the lefty, he had fastball command, had a little bit of movement going both ways. His secondary pitch, he controlled his breaking ball pretty good. It wasn't a lights-out, put-away pitch, but he controlled it and put it where he wanted to, and we just couldn't get to it."

Friday's starter – lefty Miguel Sulbaran – signed with the Dodgers as an undrafted free agent in 2011.
